You don't even know yet how ME will play on that box.  If it does,  cygwin 
may work.

Cygwin has no 64-bit support, ME has no 64-bit support.  You could build a 
cross compiler targeting your hardware, but it would be up to you to make it 
work.  First, you probably want to try out 32-bit software built with the 
standard cygwin port of gcc, using the various architecture options, like 
-march=athlon, -march=pentium4 -mfpmath=sse
